Paul Desmond is revered for the pure, make the sound of his alto saxophone, for the elegant lyricism of his improvisations. For 17 years he was part of the most commercially successful jazz band of all time: the Dave Brubeck Quartet. During this time he found his own style, which is either referred to as "Dry Martini" or simply as cool jazz. Gerry Mulligan occupies a very unique place in the American jazz world. He is one of the most important composers, arrangers, saxophonist and conductor of the 20th Century and played a central role in the development of modern jazz. Both artists played with the big scene, won price to price - and were the perfect team to Two Of A Mind. The interaction of the two saxophonists is simply poignant wonderful. Supported by Wendell Marshall (bass), Ed Shaughnessy (drums), Jim Hall (guitar), Joe Benjamin (bass), John Beal (bass) and Connie Kay (drums) show the musicians in an informal but serious session their skills.
